According to an order issued Wednesday by Judge Colleen Weiland, Tyrone Washington will appear in Cerro Gordo County to address any pre-trial motions on October 10.  The trial will be held in Webster County after it was moved out of Worth County due to pre-trial publicity.

Washington, 40, is accused of fatally stabbing Justina Smith on August 5, 2013.
